Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2015
96 points, “The Leflaive 2015 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is a superb achievement in the 2015 vintage, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of white peach, fresh bread, pear, preserved citrus, beeswax and crisp yellow orchard fruit. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, multidimensional and authoritative, distinguished by its sense of completeness and control, with terrific depth and amplitude and a long, reserved finish. The Bâtard is one of the high-points of the Leflaive range this year, fully realizing the potential of the vintage.” – Wine Advocate
Domaine Leflaive Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is one of the world’s most sought-after white wines. Back vintages like this are rare, making the epitome of fine wine decadence.
Organic, biodynamic and iconic, Domaine Leflaive is the doyen of Puligny-Montrachet producing “the kind of wine that should be delivered by Grace Kelly” according to the Wall Street Journal. The attention to detail invested in these Chardonnays “set standards for white Burgundy that few other estates can approach”, and in the words of Wine Advocate: “If you do not like Leflaive’s wines, then you do not like white Burgundy.”
Expect ripe pear, apple, peach iced tea, greengage, blossom, candied lemon, orange zest, beeswax, creamy French pastries, vanilla, chalk, sea salt and the kind of immense power that will knock your socks off. This is an incredible wine that may well keep on giving for another 20-30 years.
